Learn About BOTOX® Treatments
Getting BOTOX® injections is safe, easy, and quick. In addition to treating wrinkles, BOTOX® can be an effective way to improve patients’ smiles, often supplementing cosmetic dental work like teeth whitening sessions. BOTOX® can assist in smoothing out fine lines around your mouth, even out lip frames, and help balance out facial anatomy. Through this treatment, BOTOX® can help shift the focus to your beautiful smile.
How Do BOTOX® Treatments Work?
BOTOX® treatment uses a tiny amount of botulinum toxin, a neurotoxin that blocks nerve signals, causing the muscles to relax and existing lines to soften. BOTOX® treatments don’t just help reduce fine lines in the skin but also adjust signs of facial swelling due to inflammation, help new patients adjust to their dentures, and overall reshape your smile to an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
But BOTOX® treatments work for more than just general cosmetic appearances, addressing more complex problems. Patients with uneven lip muscle movements, gummy smiles, and other cosmetic appearances can be improved through this treatment, improving the aesthetic smile line without the need for invasive procedures. In turn, BOTOX® can treat other underlying conditions affecting the face, especially those causing significant pain and discomfort.

Is BOTOX® Only For Improving Appearances?
Through small injections, Dr. Roher can be used to treat other dental problems, including:
- TMJ Disorder: When the temporomandibular joint becomes dysfunctional, it can lead to difficulties chewing food, clicking within the jaw, and can lead to chronic headaches or earaches. BOTOX® can help relieve that pain by reducing muscle spasms throughout the face.
- Bruxism: Bruxism, or grinding and clenching of the teeth, can have massive effects on one’s oral health, causing the teeth to chip, worsening symptoms of periodontal disease, and even causing TMD. BOTOX® can treat bruxism by relieving muscle spasms and tension throughout the jawline and relieving facial pain.
- Orthodontic Therapy: Orthodontic therapy is used to help assist the facial muscles after orthodontic treatment is completed. Some people experience hyperactive muscles after their realignment, and BOTOX® can help relieve facial muscles that cause these spasms to assist in their orthodontic adjustment.
- Cosmetic Dental Procedures: Many cosmetic dental procedures can benefit from BOTOX® by enhancing your smile’s cosmetic appearance. Teeth whitening and veneers can cause drastic changes to the structure of your mouth, and BOTOX® can help enhance your treatment by eliminating fine lines and muscle spasms and providing symmetry back to your face.
